Serve the community. Obey the laws. Exist on anxiety pills. This is all Monet, a ward of her city, can hope for until she and her friend, Luke, find an old book that shows the history of mankind—a past that’s been hidden from them and all the citizens of Titus. As their curiosity takes them down a dangerous path, extraordinary events begin to occur, showing them God may exist and is reaching out to them through illegal art and a realm of paranormal activity. Monet and Luke find themselves at a crossroads: live within the safe, logical confines of Titus, or embrace the wild truth and risk death.

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:
Fans of books like The Giver will adore and love this book!
Monet lives in a society where everyone takes their daily pill and lives their life with no freedom. They can't express themselves and have to live with unbreakable rules.
At the start of the book I was a little lost and confused. However, as I kept reading I realized how powerful the character emotions were. They were dragged into a situation and had no idea what to do.
This book has several twists and turns that keep you engaged and interested.
I like how the author portrayed the characters so life-like. They weren't perfect and they definitely had struggles.
I recommend this book for those who like adventure, dystopians and growth.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 12 and up.
